Maiko 02-C: The Hour of the Ox, 2012. Collage mixed on burlap board.

The use of the burlap and the collage once again makes me go back to the earliest moments of my artistic life, when I was looking for cheap materials to start and follow the creative process. The burlap tinted blue with yellow suede fabrics produce an effect light shining similar to the sunrises in Japan. Colors flat and bright, but at the same time loaded with a fragile beauty is this experiment with the Japanese print. As the texture of the make-up of the Maikos or apprentices geisha, life is a reality many times retouched while beautiful in its conception of beauty.
